Subject: A Job for Conditional Text?

Organization: GWiz Systems, Inc.
I have 1450+ pages of software documentation that is PDF'd and delivered to the clients via CD. There are 14 sections with multiple chapters, plus manager's guide (6 chapters) and 4 appendices. We now have a new client who will be getting 'enhancements' that are not included in the normal package. I am wondering if this is an application that can best be handled using conditional text. It will involve blocks of two or three pages, including screen shots and tables, that will have to be 'made conditional.' Or, would it be better to maintain two separate files where the content differs, and use separate book files to control the versions? I have not worked with conditional text before, and the FrameMaker doc is not helping me in this decision. I am hoping someone out there in Framers' Land has experience with a similar project and can give me some advice. I am on Frame 5.5.2, and an NT system. Thanks....
